What to wear

This all depends on your fashion sense. It’s fashion week and there’ll be major fashion statements being made by designers, models and other attendees. We recommend you go for a simple casual look with a statement piece.

Be camera ready

Visual artists and photographers are always like hawks during fashion week and will be taking pictures of everything from the runway to the streets.

Heels or flats?

The answer to this question is whatever you are comfortable in. But those heel might just make you shine.

Are you bold enough to pull this off? 

Obey fashion show etiquette

Is there such a thing you ask? Yes! Arrive to shows early. RSVP for the shows you plan to attend. Don’t be that annoying person walking around or receiving a call while the show is going on or talking out loud. Sit in the allocated space created for your specific kind of ticket.

Network

 There’s no point attending these events and not meeting someone new. Mingle with fellow attendees; smile and introduce yourself to the person next to you. ]

Have fun!
